KEN PRICE Sculptures

I just recently discovered the latest works of KEN PRICE (b. 1935), a sculptor represented by the Matthew Marks Gallery in NY, and on exhibit until April 10, 2010. I applaud an artist who creates works as a manifestation that which he finds pleasurable, and like the NY Times says, are "quintessential examples of biomorphic formless art." Eeezo 1995-2009 Fired and painted clay 20 x 24 x 17 inches 51 x 61 x 43 cm Image source:


ART SUPPLY INSIGHT: Sharpie Ultra Fine pens BLEED when you SPRAY FIX (Lascaux Fixative) them on a NON-PAPER or NON-POROUS surface. Faber-Castell Pitt India Ink PENS do not (bleed). I adore the "S" pen for its thin tip (compared to Sharpie Ultra Fine). Image source

BANDAGE Paintings

Kristina Bell DiTullo creates sublime compositions (paintings?) using a variety of bandages or Band-aids. I love their transparency. Pattern 3: Band Aid, 2009 30" x 22.5" Sheer adhesive bandages on paper Image source:
